Beno Udrih "would love to stay" with Magic, according to report

Beno Udrih - Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

The free-agent-to-be likes Orlando and would consider staying with the team.

The Orlando Magic may not have viewed Beno Udrih as a long-term part of their future when they acquired the veteran point guard from the Milwaukee Bucks on February 21st, but Udrih is indeed open to re-signing with Orlando in July once he hits free agency. According to Steve Kyler of HOOPSWORLD, Udrih "would love to stay" with the Magic, but "he'll go where the money is" in free agency.

Kyler notes that Udrih's wife is from nearby Tampa, which could play a factor in Udrih's free-agent decision.

Magic general manager Rob Hennigan told Orlando Pinstriped Post the night that he acquired Udrih that he'd yet to consider Udrih's long-term fit with the team. "We'll certainly evaluate that possibility [of re-signing Udrih] throughout the rest of the season," Hennigan said.

In 17 appearances for Orlando, all off the bench, the 30-year-old Udrih is averaging eight points, 4.9 assists, and 0.7 steals per game on 42 percent shooting.
